Bob Eaton of Westford Street hasn't been spending much time in Carlisle this week. Starting this past Sunday, Eaton has been down at the WGBH-TV studios on Western Avenue in Boston, volunteering for their fund-raising auction. This year is the station's 40th annual auction week, and it's Eaton's fortieth year as a volunteer. Bob's wife Dona and his daughters Laura Libby and Lianne Eaton take part as well. It is a real family affair.

"I started watching Channel 2 many years ago when they televised college sports.... Bud Collins was on TV with tennis from Wimbledon back then," said Eaton. "My younger brother watched Mr. Rogers. Then when we had kids, they watched Mr. Rogers too, and Sesame Street. That first year of the auction, when they were asking for volunteers, I called up and volunteered." Eaton has taken part in the auction every year since 1966.

In the beginning, Eaton was involved with the merchandise at a table of small items. Over the years, he became captain of Table E (E for enormous) with a shift on the air. Eventually, he became chairman of Table E and then its producer with on-air time throughout the week.

"I start late in April as producer of Table E with warehouse merchandise contributed by listeners and various businesses. I don't get involved until the donations are at the studio. Then I have to find a place to store them, which means moving them around three or four times before we go on air," continued Eaton. "Once Emily Rooney tapes her last show for the week on Friday, the auction group moves into her studio." On air Sunday through Saturday, Eaton describes each of the items and conducts the bidding.

Dona Eaton has been involved with the auction for about 30 years. "She works with the trouble shooters," said Bob. "She handles the trouble-shooter line when things go wrong. They are known as the 'Saints' who try to make people happy. My daughters, who grew up with the auctions and came in on Sundays as kids, are also still involved.

"We are an auction family. We put in ridiculous hours, going in at 10 a.m. and coming home at 1:30 a.m.," admitted Eaton. "We do it for seven days in a row, but we don't mind it for we are with people who are fun to be with, people who are dedicated to a cause. There are 4,000 volunteers. We interact with them at other times throughout the year."

After living in Carlisle for the past 14 years, the Eatons will be moving to New Hampshire at the end of the month, to a house they have built near their daughter Laura. As a member of the Carlisle Trails Committee, Bob has told others on the committee that he will be coming down whenever he is needed. And the WGBH auction? "That is one commitment we won't give up on."

Watch for Eaton and his daughters on Channels 2 and 44 this Friday and Saturday, any time from one in the afternoon until early the following morning.
